Tobacco Shops Fear High Tobacco Tax Will Hurt Their Bottom Line

Tobacco shop and convenience store owners are concerned that the new higher taxes on cigarettes will mean a smaller bottom line for their businesses.


The price of smokes went up by a dollar-a-pack Sunday, with the added tax revenue to go towards closing the state’s Medicaid funding gap.
